KINGSTON, Okla. -- Kingston police say burglars hit two local businesses early Monday morning.

Police say sometime after two o’clock Monday morning, burglars busted through the front door of Family Dollar off Highway 70 and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

Surveillance video from the Super C Grocery Store down the road shows the suspects clothed in black hoods breaking through their front door shortly after.

Police say they ransacked the office and stole about $60 in cash there.

Police are taking a look at the surveillance video to get a better description, but are not releasing that information at this time.

    “Joe” - I am a 10 year resident in Kingston and agree we do see a turn over in officers. I do not know that it is any greater than other town, percentage wise. I, like many others, have not been to town council meeting recently. But, I do know first handed, people will LIE about other people. I experienced that just a few days ago from a so-called adult. Frankly, I will believe all the accusations are lies/rumors until all parties are sitting in the same - telling the same story – THE TRUTH. I would hope the short time any of the businesses had to shut down, due to the break-ins, did not put anyone into a financial panic. If you are going to be upset, be upset with the problem – the criminals. “Beth” - We cannot expect the police to be every where at all times. Even in the bigger cities, there is crime – and they have bigger police presence than smaller towns. All-in-all, Kingston is a nice place to live. There are other towns and communities that have neighbor watch programs that work together with the police. That may be something worth looking into for those who believe Kingston’s Police Department is understaffed. This would give the residents of Kingston the opportunity to work one-on-one with Kingston's police force - and get to know the officers personally. As for the officers "harry" mentioned - Kingston is better off without one of them he mentioned, in my opinion. A police chief in any town will only look as good as the worst officer.

    I never said anything bad about the officers. I am talking about the chief of police, funny how you said they move on to other departments with higher salaries then why do the officers complain about their chief then kinda funny if you ask me.

    For those you that keep saying bad things about the Kingston Police Department I think they do a great job. I work with these guys on a daily basis. And for those of you that don't know, it just wasn't businesses in Kingston that got broke into they stretched from Sherman Texas to Ardmore Oklahoma all in the same night. As for the break in at the Sooner Stop the Kingston Police Department made an arrest the next day and they have already gotten a conviction against the person that they had arrested. And for the Officers that everyone is wondering what had happened to them they all went to work for bigger departments with higher salaries. If the residents of Kingston aren't happy with there police department maybe they should look into increasing their salary budget. Chief Canoe does the best that he can with what the town budget will allows him to, maybe the main complaint should be on the members of the city council instead of the police department.

    You know does everyone not look at where else these burglars hit? Sherman, Tx, Colbert, Ok- Durant, Ok, Madill, Ok, Ardmore, Ok...they still have not been caught but lets blame it on the Kingston Police Department.

    You know why is it that everytime something happens in kingston its the officers fault? Officers have more things to do than run around and check all the businesses, or in this instance sit at every business and watch it, their not security gaurds, they have alot of othre things to do so why cant we lay off of the officers? There is only 1 officer on at night and theres about 20 square miles to cover, so lay off of the officers.

    Karyn, I am a resident of Kingston and what they are saying is true. I dont see it as sarcasim I see it as fact. As for rumors it's not rumors. many good officers has come and gone because of Canoe and a few more is leaving because of him and you will see it soon. When more officers are gone then it will short handed at the police department and probably more business with be broken into or vandalized. And when businesses get broken into or vandalized that is when businesses suffer and has to close which hurts the town economy.

    "I would hope the good officers were patrolling the town of Kingston, as they usually are"........ Apparently they weren't.......

    I would hope the good officers were patroling the town of Kingston, as they usually are. Anonymous sarcasim and rumors will gain us nothing.

    I agree chief Canoe has to go. O fficers are afraid to do their job because they get ran off for doing their job. Other good officers have been ran off too other then Calloway, Hamilton, Thomas, and Mimms. Chief Canoe keeps a low moral with the police department. It is time for a change in Kingston. I heard moe officers are planning to leave because of Canoe.
